Billionaires vs Luxury Points of Interest (POI)
emailsLeave a comment

“Wee Willie” Keeler, a hall of fame baseball player, once said “hit ‘em where they ain’t.” Webster Pacific takes a similar approach when helping luxury retail clients identify cities for expansion. The approach is simple: identify places where the data says there is wealth, but few luxury retail competitors exist. We took this approach in China, where we mapped every city by both billionaires (our measure of wealth) and luxury retailers. To see specifically where we think there are opportunities for luxury retailers in China, you can interact with our visualization below or watch our 2-minute video here.

CLIENT SPOTLIGHT: ALEX CRANE
emailsLeave a comment

Alex Crane, a WP client since 2019, is a “breezy” linen clothing brand based in Brooklyn.  The founder, Alex, and his COO Aaron have grown the Alex Crane brand over 300% YOY for the past 3 years straight.  They’ve been able to maintain this impressive growth and stay profitable by staying lean in terms of employee count.  As with any small and rapidly growing company, there are plenty of analytical questions to answer, but the size of their business does not warrant a full-time hire to address those questions just yet.  That’s where Webster Pacific comes in.

Over the past two years, WP has helped Alex and Aaron answer a variety of questions across marketing, operations, and finance.  A few noteworthy projects include: 1) predicting inventory to avoid stockouts, 2) implementing attribution models to optimize marketing spend, 3) finding new wholesale accounts to grow their revenue, and 4) planning their cash flow to maintain the financial health of the brand.

Predicting Fitness Studio Locations
emailsLeave a comment

As vaccines roll out and consumer confidence grows, we expect to see a significant return to in-person class fitness. To that end, we wanted to study which data is predictive of existing fitness studios like SoulCycle and Crossfit. To do so, we collected Census data within a 10-minute drive from thousands of points in NYC and regressed it against the number of studio fitness locations. Of the 50+ variables studied on population, occupation, education, and income, we found that the number of $200k+ income households had the strongest correlation to number of fitness studio classes, with an r^2 of 0.66.
